Indigenous Arts

Informed by Indigenous cultures and worldviews, we offer programs in all disciplines for emerging to established Indigenous artists. Our programs are highly transformative, situate rigour and exploration at their centre, and are inspired by ‘power of place’ here in Treaty 7 territory.

Through outstanding performances, concerts, residencies, presentations, workshops, talks, and exhibitions, Indigenous Arts contributes to strong and vibrant Indigenous arts communities in Canada and around the globe.

2024/2025 Programs

I had an amazing experience with the Banff Centre and the others in the program. Being able to create without distraction boosted my creativity and allowed me to focus on solely on my art practice. The serene location, the wonderful staff, and faculty of the program I attended left me with nothing but positive feelings for my time spent in the Banff Centre.
